• I tried a meal prep service…

    This has been something that I’ve been wanting to test out for a while now. Being someone who meal preps on a weekly basis and who encourages her clients to do so as well, I wanted to see what the hype was about pre-made meal services was. All of the “great” athletes on Instagram have a sponsorship through one of the many services and rave about how great they are. I looked into a number of different companies, large and small. A few of them being MegaFit Meals, ICON Meals,…

  • OCB Pine Tree

    2019 OCB Pine Tree State

    The 2019 OCB Pine Tree State Championships have come and gone.  As I’m sitting here writing this, I’m not quite sure where I want to begin as I am still processing the day. As anyone who has competed before knows, the day is extremely long… You barely sleep the night before partially because of excitement, but really the lack of sleep is mostly in fear of messing up your spray tan. By 6am, you’re up and moving, eat your first meal, pack your stuff, head to the venue, wait for…

  • Trip to Lake Placid, NY

    I don’t really like traveling while on a calorie restriction and deep into my competition prep…but I’ll make an exception for my family.😉 Since my niece was born in August, I have been trying to make trips to Lake Placid, NY to see my family at least once a month. After the holidays it become a bit tough due to prep, work, and my brothers work/travel schedule. My brother and his wife work for a ski education program in Lake Placid, my brother being the head coach for the Nordic…

  • Prep 2019: 13 Weeks out

    It’s been a bit since I last updated on where I’m at with my current contest prep situation. I’m 88 days out or 12 weeks and 4 days from my 1st show — the OCB Pine Tree State in Westbrook, ME…but who’s counting? I started prep the Sunday following Thanksgiving, the decision to start at about 20 weeks out was made so I could mentally get myself in the game as well as have some buffer room around the Christmas/New Years time. Last year, I did not do that and…

  • Keep It Simple

    Every Sunday, I cook. Why? Because it makes life just a bit simpler and at least 1 part of my week will be a success. 2 years ago, meal prep was not even on my radar, at least not to the point it is today. 2 years ago, I made every excuse not to meal prep, some being the following: It’s too expensive It’s time consuming The food will be wasted I don’t have time I don’t know what to make I can’t eat the same thing every single day…

  • Did You Meal Prep?

    Happy Monday! Sunday’s are my big day of meal prepping for the week. Sometimes its a quick prep and other days it takes almost the entire day depending on what I am making. This week I decided to stay simple. Wednesday, I will be hopping on a bus to NYC for Lindsey Stirling’s Wanderland tour (this will be my 5th time seeing her, and 2nd winter tour…not in love with her or her music at all😂). The trip is 6 hours from New Hampshire to NYC 🙄 — therefore I…
